On Saturday, May 12, the Global Artists Association in partnership with New York radio station HOT 97, Turner Network, and Converse attempted to break a Guinness World Record with the first annual Rapathon.

The Rapathon was held at the Hip-Hop Center Culture Center in Harlem, New York.

The Rapathon consisted of approximately 100 old school and new school artists and DJ’s, who took turns performing over a span of 24 hours to create the world’s longest, ongoing rhyme session.

No cursing and abusive or foul language was allowed in the lengthy rhyme session.

Tickets were priced at $100 to raise funds to keep the venue – the Hip-Hop Culture Center – open all year round.

DrJays.com were in attendance and we were amazed at the amount of young talent in hip-hop today staying true to the music’s essence. Keep hope alive!
